Yes, we did torque the nuts loaded. We actually had to replace the brand new Bilstein HD shocks in the first week because the first new ones 'creaked' when i turned the wheels, strange, never heard that noise before. Ordered new ones again, and only one creaked, so ordered one more. In the mean time we checked and retorqued the three smaller nuts and strut nut. It's strange that i can hit a larger hole and no problem but a sudden 1 or 2 " drop in pavement and i get a real abrupt 'bang', i'll figure it out shortly and will report the finding. Thank you for the tips !
